Taipei, May 23 (CNA) The 7-Eleven convenience store chain launched private work spaces at one of its store locations in Taoyuan on Monday that cater to individuals looking for an alternative to working from home amid the COVID-19 pandemic.

These spaces, which can be rented by the hour, are located on the second floor of the 7-Eleven Ching Hang branch store located near the Taoyuan high-speed railway station, President Chain Store Corp., which runs the 7-Eleven chain, said in a statement.

According to the company, there are 14 rooms in total, 11 of which are for the use of one person at a rate of NT$100 per hour. There are also two rooms that can accommodate two people and cost NT$180 per hour and one room for four people that costs NT$300 per hour.

Each compartment has Wi-Fi, a desk, and sockets to charge personal electronic items, and the spaces are clearly partitioned to protect personal privacy, the statement said.

The new strategy reflects the company's interest in tapping into the space sharing economy at a time when working remotely has become a new norm.
